Anyway... I am so excited for these journals! I started doing this with my class last year, but I revamped it. Every month there is a notebook with a new writing prompt and words in it. The whole class is to get to it during their writing center time. When the journal is complete you can add it to your classroom library and the kiddos can read it during Read to Self or Read to Someone time. They are always so excited to read what their classmates wrote!
I also created two prompts that can be used all year long. The one I am most excited about is, I have a question... I have an answer! The kids pose a question and each student has to answer them. I thought this would also be a great activity for the traveling journal. Your class can ask the questions and you send the journal over to another class to answer. That sounds like so much fun to me!
Hoping my Firsties and you will love this!
